The good outweighs the bad

Business Development Manager (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsAddison is really a fun place to work. The team is mostly 30 somethings and it's really a supportive environment. Even though it's a sales company that provides staffing services, everyone for the most part operates with a high level of ethics which is rare in sales organizations. The work life balance is also rare compared to other sales organizations. The biggest plus is that it isn't "corporatized" which is also rare for a company of its size. It's a company positioned for growth and is aggressive in driving growth organically and through acquisitions.

ConsLacks structure at some levels and the management team can be more task oriented and transactional instead of vision and transformation oriented. Health benefits are average at best and benefits administration is disorganized. Doesn't do an effective job of grooming mid-level employees for the next level. A pretty high amount of churn in the organization due to a combination of impatience and somewhat inadequate training. Sometimes it seems that leadership is not committed to the success of people they hire.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement a plan to groom mid-level employees for leadership. Demonstrate more commitment to the people you hire. Free up managers so they can more effectively develop their employees. Get benefits administration more organized and improve the overall benefits package.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: HR in Chicago were very professional and helpful. Cons: Unfortunately they're were too many "Chiefs not enough Indians" .. no direction, no… Advice to Senior Management: If your thinking is sloppy, your business will be sloppy. If you are disorganized, your business will be disorganized. If you are greedy, your empoyees… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
